When the bird has flown the nest….awaiting those early reviews!!

Louise Phillips

Writing a novel can be terrifying, especially at first draft stage, but even after that you ask questions of yourself, seeking the very best for your fictional story.

Before you know it you’re at copy edit stage and as the final amendments are being made, the realization dawns that soon your story will be out there in the world and the terror starts all over again!

I was nervous on the first two novels but I told myself I had done the best job that I could and after that I could do no more. It was the same when I finished LAST KISS, which is due to be published this August. However, there was something else looming…that sense that this time I had taken an almighty leap and with that an even bigger risk than before.

I’ve thought about this a lot over the last few days and I can only come up with one answer that feels right – I wrote the story as the character/characters lead me to write it, or  better described as a story that is character driven. There is a lot of plot too and twists and hopefully some good writing, but it is nevertheless a character driven tale.

It is still early days but two reviews have come in and they bring with them a temporary respite of relief!!! Crossing my fingers, toes, eyes, and anything else I can that you will enjoy it too!!

Louise Phillips takes you on a journey to the dark side with a story that is as fast-paced and thrilling as a rollercoaster..”
